Design with Maintenance in Mind

TEND landscape architects specialize in the living systems and performance of landscapes from design and specification through installation and management. TEND’s philosophy is based in sustainability and stewardship. We believe that the connection between design intent and how a landscape is ultimately cared for is vital to a project’s long-term success. TEND was formed in response to a recognized need for experience and technical knowledge in the execution and care of built living systems. 

We share a passion for planning landscapes at all scales, whether residential or large public spaces; each must consider the needs of today while providing the structure for resiliency to adapt and thrive with tomorrow’s challenges. Our goal is to be a collaborator with the owner or on a multi-disciplinary team to facilitate beautiful landscapes designed and installed properly at the outset and managed for diversity and high performance into the future.
